Opa! Great Greek food is found all over the United States, with specialties from classic entrees such as pastitsio, keftedes, and moussaka to Americanized hand-held interpretations of gyros, Greek fries, and more. It’s an earthier, more plucked-from-the-garden and straightforward cuisine than fancy French cooking and one that celebrates the bounty of azure-ringed, sun-drenched islands where lemons, olives, tomatoes, greens, and vegetables appear in virtually every meal and lamb dishes are king. Though serving delicious menus, most spots we’ve selected are affordable chain restaurants with healthier and faster fare than a traditional taverna, along with a few upscale dining rooms and nouveau culture-blending twists on the fare. So is it time to brush up on belly dancing? After a big fat Greek meal, perhaps.
